#Beach Blues – Wordless Wednesday September 20, 202233 Comments When those September clouds start to roll in – the end of summer blues set in. Dock sitting seems desolate when the sky is cloudy and the river water is a dark blue. (Note how long the freighter is in the background.) It makes you grateful when the sun comes back out and sparkles on the water. But there’s still time for one last trip to the beach. There were lots of sailboats out, behind the beach grass. We’re lucky to have a hundred acre park with a beach right in the city. This photo is from the 1950’s before the parking lot was paved and before erosion set in. The section in the top of the photo is private property with deeded beach rights, so you seldom see anyone walking along there. I’ll take the house with the gazebo! There were lots of different variations of blue, depending on the intensity of the sun. Darker blue with more sailboats. The circle of smaller sailboats in the distance is the beginners class from the yacht club. I like to check out all the colorful beach umbrellas. It was a picture perfect day – something to store up until next year.
